White House announces three actions on AI

May 04, 2023

A new fact sheet released today from the White House outlines three recent activities related to artificial intelligence. First, the National Science Foundation is announcing today its latest investments in National AI Research Institutes; the new $140 million across seven awardees brings the total number of institutes funded since 2020 to 25. Second, the administration is supporting an AI “red team” event at DEF CON 31 that intends to have thousands of hackers explore large language models from Google, Open AI, NVIDIA and others. Third, the Office of Management and Budget will release draft policy guidance on the use of AI systems by the federal government this summer.

These announcements come as public attention to AI has increased substantially, reports of potential job losses are becoming more dire, and many people who already have or hope to someday make money on the technology want a “pause” on further development by current industry leaders.
